Lindsey Vonn captured a downhill race Saturday in Are, Sweden, three weeks after a concussion curtailed her world championships. This marked the 40th World Cup victory of her career, extending her American record for men and women.
Vonn finished in 1 minute, 40.93 seconds for her seventh victory this season.
She was followed by Slovenia’s Tina Maze, who trailed by 0.13 seconds, and Maria Riesch of Germany, the World Cup leader.
